Senior British commanders compare US troops to Nazis

11-04-2004 20:24

Senior British commanders have condemned American military tactics in Iraq as heavy-handed and disproportionate.

One senior officer said that America's aggressive methods were causing friction among allied commanders and that there was a growing sense of "unease and frustration" among the British high command.

The officer, speaking on condition of anonymity, said part of the problem was that American troops viewed Iraqis as untermenschen - the Nazi expression for "sub-humans".

Speaking from his base in southern Iraq, the officer said: "My view and the view of the British chain of command is that the Americans' use of violence is not proportionate and is over-responsive to the threat they are facing. They don't see the Iraqi people the way we see them. They view them as untermenschen. They are not concerned about the Iraqi loss of life in the way the British are."

Good. Here's your rifle, Tony. Couple bullets. Baggy green suit (we ran out of the tan ones), some water, sorry the body armor didn't get delivered, travel docs, and don't forget to take a deep breath of all that depleted uranium dust while you are over there.

Rising Tide Banner Drop - Oil Festival Hall

11-04-2004 14:10

London Rising Tide Drops a Banner At The Royal Festival Hall

Today, in preparation for BP's AGM this coming Thursday, London Rising Tide (LRT) activists re-named the Royal Festival Hall.

London Rising Tide hunged a 15 by 18 foot banner from the front of the
building announcing the venue's new name - the Oil
Festival Hall (OFH).

BP's AGM begins at 10am on Thursday April 15th. LRT will be in attendence, taking
action, partly against BP, but also as part of its ongoing campaign to persuade the OFH, sometimes known as the People's Palace, not to shut its doors to the public for the day in exchange for BP's hefty fee, and to protect its reputation by cancelling next year's BP booking.

Come along on the day (and help us spread the word far and wide).

Intifada, Iraqi Style: Reports from Baghdad

11-04-2004 13:12

Journalist Naomi Klein and Photographer Andy Stern report from Baghdad: "April 9, 2003 was the day Baghdad fell to U.S. forces. One year later, it is rising up against them. Donald Rumsfeld claims that the resistance is just a few “thugs, gangs and terrorists.” This is dangerous, wishful thinking. The war against the occupation is now being fought out in the open, by regular people defending their homes and neighbourhoods - an Iraqi intifada."
